Download: Shlohmo’s FACT Mix
Download: FACT mix 277 – Shlohmo
Last month, Shlohmo dropped his debut LP, Bad Vibes, and instantly vaulted himself into album-of-the-year contention (at least for us folks at belated, baby). We had already vibed excessively (and blogged responsibly) to the lead single and belated tune “Places.” But, with gems like “Same Time” and “Big Feelings,” Shlohmo manages to create a listening space that feels incredibly novel, not to mention strangely, vulnerably relatable. Taken as a whole, Bad Vibes transmits an aesthetic that, honestly, is probably more special than can be appreciated so shortly following its release.
Now, the ever-prolific LA artist has put together another expectation-exceeding piece: a 36-minute mix for FACT Magazine that he describes thusly:
“It’s pretty much just a list of music I had been listening to a lot while I was putting this together. I listen to a lot of different shit, so it’s kind of all over the place, both in genre and in sound quality. There’s some old shitty 64kpbs mp3s, some found cassettes, some broken cassettes, some music by friends, some Charles Manson, some screwed and chopped, you get it all.”
Kind of all over the place indeed: a smooth, engaging listen filled with treasures galore. Be sure to listen up for his haunted, slowed version of Clipse’s “Nightmares.”
